Agency Innovation Made Easy: Best Practices from 18F and Cloud.gov

Federal agencies that turn to the cloud to deliver IT services often find that they have taken on more work than they expected. In addition to managing the IT services themselves, agencies find themselves struggling to manage the underlying infrastructure and compliance requirements of the platform. There’s a better way.

Join the General Services Administration’s 18F as they discuss how they leveraged commercial cloud services to build cloud.gov, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering that provides agencies with new IT modernization capabilities. The FedRAMP authorized cloud.gov platform can help agencies accelerate cloud adoption to better scale development efforts and lower costs while improving performance.

Participants will learn:

  • When and why to use “Platform as a Service” cloud service providers for government IT work, in comparison to “Infrastructure as a Service” cloud service providers.
  • How to leverage a cloud service provider’s FedRAMP JAB P-ATO to reduce the amount of time and work required for your system’s security compliance, including getting ATO (Authority to Operate) faster.
  • How to evaluate whether using cloud.gov can help your federal agency team save time and money.
  • Why cloud.gov is completely open source as part of its mission to help modernize government IT, including why we choose to use open source products and publish open source code.
